New Semester!

The Spring Semester is finally here! The month away went by really fast, and I desperately needed it, but it’s time to hit the books once again. The other day, I didn’t feel like I was ready to come back yet. I was really enjoying my vacation to the fullest. However, now that I am back, I am really happy to be here and am confident that this semester is going to be great.

This semester, I am taking Math, which at first I was really anxious about. I have never been a very good math student. I have difficulty understanding certain aspects of it. I remember back in high school when my class was doing proofs, and no matter how many times my teacher tried explaining it to me, I simply couldn’t understand it, and I still don’t understand it. However, I think that this semester of math isn’t going to be all that bad. I know the semester just started, but I already have a full understanding of what we are doing, and I find it to be very easy. The professor said that a majority of what we do in class will not be difficult; it will just be time-consuming, and we will need to show our work for everything. Well, I don’t like the term “time-consuming” any more than the next college student, but I would rather spend a lot of time on something that I understand than receive poor grades because I don’t understand the material.

None of my other classes seem like they are going to be too strenuous either. Like I said, I am really looking forward to this semester.

One thought on “New Semester!

  1. you don’t know me, but i just commented on one of your journal entries and for some reason i didn’t realize at the time that it wasn’t your most recent one, so i’m going to comment again, because i’m not sure if you will get the other one. but i stumbled across your journal through the oswego website when i was browsing through it and i thought it would be interesting to see what people thought of the school and what not. i actually just applied to oswego for the fall semster, and am just waiting to hear back from them. but i just wanted to let you know that i enjoyed reading your thoughts. =)
